Where would I be?

First off, leave now if you don’t want to hear me gush a little about my wife. Good.

I don’t normally try to dwell on the past because, well, it is in the past. However, sometimes it is kind of fun to think back a little and try and imagine how different things would be if decisions you had made were changed. Tonight’s thought: Where would I be if I hadn’t met Laura (my wife)?

The best way for me to enumerate this is to create a list!

  1. living in my parent’s garage (loft)
  2. drinking a lot more pop
  3. eating terribly
  4. still wearing the same shirts I wore in high school
  5. have a desk with four monitors on it
  6. stay up until 2am most nights
  7. still trying to figure out what to do with my life
  8. afraid to drive in a city with more than 13,000 people in it
  9. still wearing the same glasses from high school
  10. never EVER worked out

It would be quite a change. There is no mention of the other things that I would be missing out on either like having a family, owning a house, soliciting bids for a bathroom project, having kids, being a husband and father … and the list can just go on and on.

I’d also not smell nearly as nice.
